Public invited to Admissions Office special events in June

The Penn State Beaver Admissions Office will host three free information and application sessions for the public in June in the Student Union Building.

An Administration of Justice (AOJ) Information Session will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, June 8. Current and prospective students as well as all police and corrections officers and other criminal justice workers are invited to learn more about the new bachelor’s degree in administration of justice now offered at Beaver campus. Participants can begin or advance their career through the program.

Beaver County District Attorney Anthony Berosh, a Penn State alumnus, and Beaver County Detective Robert Chamberlain, a current student in Beaver's AOJ program, will discuss the value of the degree in today’s world. Mari Pierce, assistant professor of AOJ, will discuss the particular benefits of Penn State’s AOJ program in setting or reaching career goals. Admissions and financial aid counselors will be available to answer questions and meet one-on-one with attendees.

The Adult Student Application Day will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, June 10, in the Student Union Building. Adults hoping to begin or continue a college degree are welcome. Participants will meet with an admissions counselor, learn about Penn State programs, and complete an admission application. Those attending are asked to bring official transcripts from previous educational institutions, and some might be offered admission to Penn State that day. The Admissions Office will waive the $50 application fee, although there are some exceptions.

The Spend a Summer Evening program will be offered at 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, and allows participants to meet with Beaver campus admissions staff members, faculty, and students to learn about the admissions process, financial aid, Penn State’s academic opportunities, and life on and off campus. Registration and refreshments begin at 5 p.m., followed by a 5:30 p.m. start time for the program. Penn State Creamery ice cream will be served to all attendees.

Beaver campus offers bachelor's degrees in administration of justice, business, communications, information sciences and technology, and psychology, and each degree can be completed entirely at Beaver. In addition, the campus offers the ‘2 + 2 program’ which allows students to enroll in the first two years of more than 160 bachelor degrees at Beaver before moving to another Penn State location to complete the degree.
